A cracked planchet with uneven edges and very worn. Almost identical to the description and illustration accompanying KM 0043 for the Dominican Republic, except that the last word on the reverse clearly ends in E (INDIE?) and not I (INDI) as shown. Krause and Mishler also say that the composition should be billon but this appears to be copper.
